Derwent Living is a ‘profit for social purpose’ organisation providing affordable housing to suit a range of lifestyles. Formed in 1964, Derwent Living manages more than 25,000 properties across the UK.
During the past 50 years, Derwent Living’s remit has expanded significantly, but our core values remain the same. Our mission is to be an excellent provider of affordable housing in the Midlands – a private body with a social purpose.
As well as homes to rent for people on lower incomes, Derwent Living offers properties for retired people, homes for sale through part-buy, part-rent schemes, residential lettings and key-worker accommodation. Derwent Living’s primary focus is providing good, affordable housing and improving services for residents through greater resident engagement and involvement.
Much of our stock is new-build, with modern, well-designed features. Derwent Living is committed to continuing to develop new homes in response to widespread housing need.
Derwent Living joined the Places for People group as a subsidiary in 2017.
Our head offices are in Pride Park, Derby although we have local offices on some sites.
